Block mounting is a cheap alternative to framing. The technique (also known as display mounting, photo mounting or art mounting) involves sealing high quality photographic prints onto a wooden MDF board. The process of creating one is as follows: The digital image or artwork is uploaded. The block mounting company prints the image onto photographic paper with a finish (either matt or glossy). The print is adhered securely onto an MDF wooden board with black edging, using a vacuum press and heat seal glue.
